Two more photos of the pink lily or as I saw online some call them orchid-lavender or peach pink. I’m so much looking forward to the orange ones to also bloom soon and to perhaps be able to take some photos of all three or actually all four different color daylilies in one picture. The fourth one is the one my friend brought me two weeks ago. My friend has daylilies in several different colors and was not sure about which she brought me. We’ll have to wait and see.
First thing I did Sunday morning I looked out the patio door. No, no Strawberry Candy in bloom. Monday morning the same thing. No, not yet. Today, there, the first one in bloom. Even before having my morning coffee I took some pictures of it plus some more during the day. I know, way too many, as always. There are two stems, nine buds each, makes eighteen flowers which makes me very happy.
Yesterday was the first time my Catherine Woodbury had three flowers at one time. One on each stem. Of course, I took pictures of them. I read online that it has a light fragrance. I have not noticed any but when the next flowers are in bloom I will put my nose into it to find out what it smells like.
All three daylilies are in bloom. All the other lilies have, because of the very warm temperatures, finished flowering already. Also the snails and beetles made them look sad as they ate both of the flowers and the leaves. I wonder if there is something I can add to the ground that would prevent the snails and beetles.
Catherine Woodberry Day lily. Or is it Woodbery or Woodbury or . . . you get the all three versions on Google.
Orange Daylily Hemerocallis
“Hemerocallis fulva, the Orange Daylily, Tawny Daylily, Tiger Daylily, Fulvous Daylily or Ditch Lily (also Railroad Daylily, Roadside Daylily, Outhouse Lily, Tiger Lily, and Wash-house Lily)”
The above information is from Wikipedia. I’ll just keep it simple and call it Orange Lily 😉
Strawberry Candy Daylily.
Good thing is there are no snails and beetles on this side of our house where the daylilies are. Only a cute hedgehog. Saw him yesterday at about 11 pm. We have not seen any, around here, for years. I read they eat both snails and bugs. Hmm, hedgehogs, they might be the solution to the snail/bug problem.
